Filter Forge Professional is a standalone application and a plugin for Adobe Photoshop giving computer artists free access to 12,000 textures and effects: seamless materials, photo effects, distortions, patterns, frames, and more. It also includes a visual filter editor for building custom filters. Filter Forge can produce a wide range of textures and effects which include organic structures, metallic and rocky surfaces, distortions, abstract textures, repeating patterns, color corrections, and much more. All filters are adjustable and editable, seamlessly tiled, resolution-independent, and support real-world HDRI lighting. Also, filters can automatically generate diffuse, specular, bump, and normal maps, which makes Filter Forge an essential tool for artists creating 3D models and environments, architectural visualization and high-end game content. Filter Forge can work as a Photoshop plugin or a standalone application. The key features of Filter Forge include the Filter Editor and a free online library of user-created filters to which anyone can contribute. The Filter Editor is a visual node-based environment allowing users to build custom filters by connecting components into a network to combine their effects. Components include familiar operations such as blurs, gradients, color adjustments, distortions, and blending, as well as fractal noises, HLS and HSY color models, color-preserving adjustments, and more. For end-users, the filter internals are hidden behind a simple set of filter controls â€“ anyone can immediately benefit from filters without knowing what is inside them.
